Remarks by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice at Palmachim Air Force Base, Israel

NSA Susan Rice reaffirms U.S. support for Israel’s security

 

Published on May 9, 2014

National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice headed a delegation of top administration officials to…See more National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice headed a delegation of top administration officials to Israel where she held productive bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Peres and National Security Advisor Yossi Cohen, and participated in the U.S.-Israel Consultative Group meetings. The intensive and highly constructive meetings covered a range of bilateral and regional security issues. Ambassador Rice said after a tour of the Arrow 3 missile defense facility at Palmachim Air Force Base: “Visiting this base it’s clear that the strength and depth of the security cooperation between Israel and the United States has never been greater. … There can be no doubt whatsoever: America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering and ironclad. … Every American dollar spent on Israel’s security is an investment in protecting the many interests that our nations share. … Thank you all for your service and for your friendship with the American people.”

Good morning everyone, it’s really wonderful to be back in Israel, and I want to start by congratulating the people of Israel on your celebration of 66 years of independence this week.  I met with President Peres and Prime Minister Netanyahu on my visit over the last couple of days, and I had a chance to convey President Obama’s warmest wishes as well.

 

I want to begin by saying to Yossi and General Shohat, as you know I just had the opportunity to take a tour and see the outstanding work you’re doing to keep the Israeli people secure.  Visiting this base, it’s clear that the strength and depth of the security cooperation between Israel and the United States has never been greater.  Indeed under President Obama’s leadership, we’ve taken our security cooperation to unprecedented levels.

 

Just two months ago, our governments signed an agreement, under which nearly half a billion dollars from the United States will be invested in the Iron Dome system.  That will take our total investment in Iron Dome, which has saved countless Israeli lives, to nearly $900 million – a sign of our continued commitment to Israel’s security.  We’re going to fund additional batteries that will protect more Israeli communities, military bases, and critical infrastructure from rocket and mortar attacks.  And that’s why, here at Palmachim Air Force Base, where brave Israeli men and women in uniform operate cutting edge American and Israeli technology, there can be no doubt whatsoever:  America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering and ironclad.

 

Together, we’ve made enormous progress in our missile defense technology, including in the Arrow 3 and David’s Sling programs.  But obviously, our work is not done.  We will continue our joint research, our joint investment and our joint training.  We remain deeply committed to Israel’s qualitative military edge, and this impressive facility and all the work being done here is a wonderful example of that enduring partnership.

 

The American people care deeply about the people of Israel.  We admire your commitment to advancing the values of a free and open society, while facing the uncertainties of living in a very challenging neighborhood.  Our two nations are forever bound by our shared history and our shared values, and every American dollar spent on Israel’s security is an investment in protecting the many interests that our nations share—whether that’s preventing rockets from terrorizing the Israeli people, defending against the growing ballistic missile threat in the region, or advancing our commitment to defend freedom and democracy.

 

Thank you all for your service and for your friendship with the American people.

Weekly Wrap Up: Climate Change Is Here, the President Is Taking Action, and More

 

This week, the President attended the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner; the most comprehensive report on the effects of climate change was released, Dr. Jill Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan met with educators at the White House; and more. Check out what else you may have missed in this week’s wrap up.

 

 

President and Comedian-in-Chief

Over the weekend, the President attended the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner and, in keeping with the dinner’s tradition, assumed the role of Comedian-in-Chief in his remarks. From poking fun at the administration to jabs at the news media, many were roasted and few were spared.

 

President Obama ended his remarks on a high note, thanking the White House Correspondents’ Association for all of their hard work as the organization celebrated its 100th anniversary.

 

 

 

And in case you missed it, two Vice Presidents opened the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in a great new video.

“We’re Not Done Yet”

Back in January during the State of the Union address, the President announced that he would take action to expand opportunities for American families wherever and whenever he can — with Congress or without. Watch President Obama describe in his own words the actions he’s taken so far this year — like raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for all federal contractors, addressing the gender pay gap, and giving everyday Americans a chance to save for retirement.
